I think to make it slightly “uglier” you should add the silver a,s,d,w keys instead of the gold ones, just a suggestion that would make it better looking in my opinion.

honestly in the right context they could actually look nice. for example you can put them only on some keys, keep the rest white and shine light blue underneath.

My keyboard (the Logitech G512 SE) has RGB but to be honest, I'd rather it didn't. Different keys randomly stop lighting up then fix themselves anywhere from a week later to months down the line. Unfortunately, the way it's designed means that it's incredibly difficult to see the markings on them without the light unless I hunch over my keyboard and look closely. It's pretty annoying. I like the clicky feel of the keyboard but the RGB is honestly more trouble than it's worth.

Funny to see this in 2022. I remember building PCs in the mid 2000s I might toss in a cold cathode ray tube like literally 1 of them to provide a little light in a case. Beyound that I wasnt into it too much, when I built my next PC in 2011 0 lights. When I went to build in 2019 you have to go pretty far out of your way to not have most things RGB. I gave in, color'd fans, the mobo has some lights onn the side of the rear IO cover, CPU waterblock has lights and of course... so does the memory. lol

Draightmare Пре 9 месеци
honestly, the only useful things i see on rgb things for pc is that will help a bit to not damage the eye in dark areas, like ambient light, but for everything else, of course also looks cool, but it's a waste of electricity and in motherboard and graphics card and computer components in general will create a bit of heat. Is subjective, tho, I would have an rgb keyboard and screen for ambient light
